Imagine being the executive editor of @BulwarkOnline and writing a whole article condemning Julian Castro without realizing that he and Joaquin Castro are two different people.

He deleted both the tweet and the article without explanation, how courageous. The story now redirects to a 404 page:  https://thebulwark.com/newsletter-issue/julian-castro-is-unfit-to-be-president/  Here's what it looked like:

"Truth is a force of nature"

For what it's worth, @JVLast has now acknowledged the error and apologized, and @BulwarkOnline republished the story with an editor's note at the top. Doesn't erase an ugly and (imo) revealing mistake, but owning up to it matters.
